France: A Decomposing Civilization

France's authorities and elites are tearing up, piece by piece, the country's historical, religious and cultural legacy so that nothing remains. A nation dispossessed of its identity will see its inner strength broken.
Ah! Ma belle France, ma pauvre France! Terre de Charles Martel et Charlemagne. Ce qui vous est arrivé?
(Ah! My beautiful France, my poor France! Land of Charles Martel and Charlemagne. What has happened to you?)
As I have commented previously, more than once and in more than one forum, a nation, a culture, a society has this in common with a plant: cut off from its roots, it will wither and die.
What is happening to France is, or should be, a cautionary tale for what many among the so-called "elite" want to happen to the U.S. – and indeed, with the current attacks against historic statues, monuments, plaques, flags, and other iconography of our past, the assault is well under way.
